If all forms and required documents are not received by AOT within the 30 days, AOT may cancel the enrolment and close the application.

A Statement of Attainment for any completed units will only be issued if fees are withheld at the individual unit price.

Cancellations (other than eligible cancellations during the orientation period) for students that have commenced their course will not be entitled to a refund.

Statement of Attainment/s will only be issued for any units that have been satisfactorily completed and paid for.

Deferred payments are not entitled to a Statement of Attainment unless the amount is equivalent or more than the calculated unit price.

In the case of a student withdrawing from a course due to illness or extreme hardship, AOT may, at its discretion, allow a refund of the fees. The following conditions apply:

The person concerned must produce satisfactory evidence of the circumstances such as medical certificates;

  • A cancellation fee of 25% of full course fees (not discounted price) will be withheld;
  • Withdrawal and request for refund must take place within the first three (3) months of the course commencement; and
  • If a refund has been issued, a Statement of Attainment will NOT be granted for any units

Course cancellation due to USI not verified

This may only occur if the student has not responded to multiple phone calls, voice messages and emails from AOT regarding the submission of their USI. Students that have commenced their course, and passed the orientation period, will not be entitled to a refund.

Reinstatement of Course

AOT will not reinstate a student into a course following the course expiry or enrolment closure date.

I acknowledge that if for any reason; personal or medical that I cannot continue my studies, I have the option to apply for withdrawal or to place my course on hold.  This can be done by following the guidelines outlined in the sections:

  • Withdrawal during course or program
  • Withdrawal due to illness or hardship

Student Handbook:

The AOT Student Handbook is available for download from the AOT website. I accept it is my responsibility to ensure I read and understand the AOT Student Handbook prior to enrolment.

Offers for Returning Students:

Nationally Recognised Course Units

The nationally recognised course or unit/s you complete with AOT may be valid for credit transfer into several qualifications. Each credit transfer reduces the number of units you will have to study and may reduce the fee you pay. AOT are no obliged to discount fees for credits. Please contact a course advisor in regard to a new qualification and applicable credits.

Credit transfers for previously issued equivalent units of competency

Credit will be granted for equivalent units of competency issued by any Australian authorised issuing organisation, such as a RTO, school or university. To grant credit transfer, an analysis will be undertaken by AOT to confirm:

  • the equivalence of the unit completed with the relevant enrolling unit; and
  • the authenticity of the certificate or statement of attainment produced (AOT will contact the organisation that issued the document and confirm the content is valid). If the issuing organisation is no longer operating, AOT requires the student to be responsible for obtaining a valid letter/transcript from the National VET regulator or state VET regulator for Victoria and Western Australia documenting the competencies you have achieved. In some instances, the student may have past transcripts of completed nationally recognised training recorded against their USI account. The student would need to provide permission for AOT to view their USI transcript.

AOT are not obliged to issue a qualification that is achieved wholly through recognition of units completed at another RTO or issuing organisation.

Revisions

AOT may revise the Student Handbook, Policy Documents and any terms and conditions contained in this agreement, at any time at our sole discretion. Any such revisions will be available from our website.

Unique Student Identifier (USI)

You need a USI upon enrolment with AOT as part of our legislative reporting requirements of a registered training organisation. We cannot issue a qualification or Statement of Attainment without a USI.

From 1st January, 2015 new legislation by the Australian Government advised that each person undertaking nationally recognised training are required to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). This must be collected and verified by the training organisation.

It is a mandatory requirement to provide your USI as part of your enrolment with AOT if you are:

  • an Australian expat or resident (you need a USI even if you do the course whilst living outside Australia).
  • an international student living in Australia

International students not living in Australia are not required to submit a USI.

If you do not already have one, click here to create your USI https://www.usi.gov.au/students
